8.5Fantastic

The storyline is pretty straight-forward, but a very satisfying combat system was the meat here. The structure was similar to just about any PS2 hack-n-slash game from those times, but with a God-theme and unusual amounts of sex and violence, this was different. Also the combat was more serious and "heavy", not as flying and jumpy as, say, Devil May Cry. A lot of great abilities and great parts. Yeah, there's a couple frustrating parts too, but nothing too serious. One of the finest games of the genre.

10Classic!

Great story and Mind-Numbingly Visceral gameplay and gore make this game the best hack and slash of all time. With revolutionary controls and a fantasized version of Ancient Greece this game will be on my replay list for the rest of time. Although the sequels had better gameplay, this one stands out as the best because of it's story aspect, and the fact that it was the only one that truly had respect for itself making a walking pectoral muscle named Kratos into a sympathetic character. This game is truly a testament to David Jaffe's true skills in game design although i was never really a fan of his other titles, this game alone is enough to get him into the video game version of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

7.5Great

My opinion of Kratos' character changed for the better after playing this game. Sure he can still be seen as a screaming bag of muscles sometimes, but playing through the story, I actually started to feel sympathy for him. Hopefully this can continue with the later games. As for the gameplay, it is a bit clunky, but still kinda enjoyable. I like how it actually feels like a great mythological trek rivalling the stories of Jason and the Argonauts or Odysseus' journey home. It's also pretty challenging too, especially near the end, so the game does encourage you to explore the linear terrain for any hidden chests. The backgrounds are huge and impressive, but other graphics like character models and such, don't look very good.

5.0Average

The game has a really unlikable style, only one of it's three bosses (the middle one) is any good, and it takes forever to get enjoyable. However, I really like Pandora's temple, and dodging with the right analog stick works great.
